Cutler, Putnam - merely names (of streets, buildings, businesses) to me no more;
Ohio - a river and a state thought little by New England residents like me, suddenly longed for (New England connections, Indian Wars, the Mound ... Underground Railroad), but trees are gone and wilderness may be all manicured.
Another lucid account to convince the old world, our country has the most successful record in history (of all regions and dynasties, great and small) to improve human condition and advance characters, through early settlement and emigration in the shortest time period.
Life of the pioneers, admirable, even in fortunate or desperate time of history, are not meant for many.
